for the state department and for her country. we've seen that heavy assault on our post in benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we have nothing to do with. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that because it is senseless and it is totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of the tape trader for the tyranny of a mob. reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. and we will, under the president's leadership, keep taking steps to protect our personnel around the world. there will be more difficult days ahead, but it is important that we don't lose sight of the fundamental facts that america must keep leading the world. we owe it to those four men to continue the long, hard work of diplomacy. i am enormously proud of the men and women of the state department. i am proud of all those across our government, c
, militant terrorists and they are the ones who attacked the cult in benghazi and they have been doing their deed for the last 10, 15 years since afghanistan, iraq and now around the world. so you got that movement going. you got mainstream islamic groups like muslim brotherhood groups in egypt and other places who are competing for a new place in the political arena that's evolving in these countries that's democraticizing and old pent up grievances against the united states and other western countries. you have three or four things coming together where they are evolving political conditions and people are competing to get public opinions, so these things come together and that's how we should best understand this. >> is this a subset of the arab world or a broad base thing? >> what's interesting you have these demonstrations all over the islamic world, indonesia, nigeria, bangladesh. the movie triggers anger and rage for muslims across the islamic world. in the arab world you have a set of political grievances against the u.s. and europe and other places and these are coming into pl
in the assassination of our ambassador in benghazi is quite significant because it rips a hole in the administration argument that the war on terror is over. it is very much in force as we can see. stuart: last time mitt romney said anything about this was placed appearance when he was responding to the semi apology the embassy of cairo put out. the response to what mitt romney said was from the media that this -- is this now a new opportunity for mitt romney to get into this issue? >> i think it is. this shows that our commander-in-chief not only is weak and indecisive but fundamentally misunderstands what is going on in the middle east and while people are focused on the economy the potential danger to the united states over the next four years is real. stuart: is it right for a challenger in a presidential election to go after the incumbent president on foreign policy six weeks to the election? >> absolutely. if you go back to 1944 and look at republican criticism of franklin roosevelt's handling of the war until then that is real criticism of a critical foreign policy. remember the war in vietna
